Rationalism on Set: Glamour and Modernity in 1930’s Italian Cinema

This exhibition, now on at the Estorick Collection, explores Glamour and Modernity in 1930s Italian Cinema.

18 April 2018 – 24 June 2018 | Visit website

Rationalism on Set: Glamour and Modernity in 1930's Italian Cinema - now on at the Estorick Collection - explores a little-known period of Italian cinematic history, highlighting the strong Modernist influence apparent in the set designs created for a number of romantic comedies during the inter-war years. 

A selection of vintage photographs will be complemented by sketches and contemporary periodicals sourced from the Cineteca Nazionale, Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia (Rome), the Cineteca di Bologna, the Museo Nazionale del Cinema (Turin) and the RIBA Collections. 

Rationalism on Set runs at London’s Estorick Collection from 18 April until 24 June 2018.
